The man with the gun was wrong, but it may have been one of Avenger's "veiled threats" that got the victim shot.posted @ Tuesday, January 14, 2014 - 10:01
[quote][b]avenger[/b] - @nowheregirl: If you want to talk on the phone or text, do it somewhere that doesn't interfere with others. Well, I guess that would involve having good manners, showing civility and being respectful. Most would not consider this because they are in their OWN world and are generally clueless. Texting with a 3 year old is the first clue. However..........shooting this nut was not the answer.
The movie hadn't started yet and the guy was checking on his 3 year old kid. The victim was texting during the previews. Are you blaming him for getting shot?
I've been in theaters that people have been on their phones talking or texting during the movie and I asked them nicely but with a veiled threat to quit and have never had an incident . I even had a few mouth off to me but they put their phones away and I didn't try to escalate the situation.
And why do you call the victim a nut? Wasn't the real nut the guy who pulled out a gun and shot someone over texting? [/quote]
"Veiled threats". Now you are no better than the guy with the gun. Being a bully is being a bully, and making threats directed at other people is being a bully. "Veiled" or not. You may be the biggest hypocrite on this site.posted @ Tuesday, January 14, 2014 - 09:59

It wont matter. The woman involved, and the rest of the family, will be on the news later today saying how the police used too much force. How they could have handled things differently. Then they will start a lawsuit against the city.posted @ Monday, November 25, 2013 - 11:12

@mpd0.59 Didn't Holmes lie on his paperwork when purchasing his weapons? The questionnaire part where asked about purchasing gun with intent to harm others/self. The question about having been diagnosed with mental problems. (I am assuming that other states have same type forms for purchasing weapons as Ga. Could be wrong) Does this still make it a legal gun purchase? Just a question, not an attack. I have wondered this myself.posted @ Friday, November 22, 2013 - 12:54

@hoodoo: so these companies buy the land for the natural resources and pay taxes on land. Then they pay the mostly local employees salaries and payroll taxes. Now they should give the county the profits for doing nothing? I don't get it.posted @ Friday, November 15, 2013 - 17:11
[quote][b]DawgFan1988[/b] - I propose that they enforce "paddling" heavily in Oconee County.....a public school district where the majority of the kids are overindulged brats from affluent families...."professional" families that ought to be sending their kids to PRIVATE schools anyways...since the majority of the "conservative" parents in that county subscribe to the mindset that "government can't do ANYTHING right" and there TVs are constantly tuned into the Faux Pas News Network.
P.S. - I will personally supply all their public schools with heavy duty wooden paddles made out of MLB baseball bat quality grade ash!!!
Spank, spank, spank! Ouch!
I love how these illegal immigrants keep coming here and complaining about spoiled brats from professional families. Sorry your own countries are so behind that they think a professional is a drug dealer or drug smuggler. If you don't like it here, go back to Mexico.posted @ Monday, November 4, 2013 - 10:05

You gotta get out there early if you want enough for a meal, lol.
The one and only time I've ever been dove hunting, my dad and I sat out for about 6 hours and got maybe 3 doves. He said cleaning them would be more trouble than it was worth and started to dig a hole to bury them, then this guy came over the hill carrying a stringer with two dozen doves on it, and said "Y'all want these? I can't stand cleaning the little bastards".
I still remember mom cussing while she plucked and cleaned all those doves. I think she had hoped we'd come back empty handed, lol.
Plucking doves is for people like Dawgfan. Just pop out the breast, spread a little cream cheese and jalapeno on it, and wrap with bacon. Grill it. Bet its good!
Also, a little practice with clays can improve the number of doves you bring home.
I hope after he is found guilty he gets a permanent rest.posted @ Tuesday, August 27, 2013 - 09:03

Summary: I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
